Meanwhile, DUP leader Arlene Foster has claimed that Mr Barnier does not understand unionist culture.

join the club.

He denied accusations made by Ms Foster that he aggressive and he is "not an honest broker".
I agree. He is a negotiator for EU. Not the same..

I find the converse and inverse of this quote apply for much of the time but the contrapositive applies all of the time.

That happens a lot in astrology, too.

The recent loss of Tom Wolfe made me think of a certain Generation of bitchy, feuding US authors and I remembered this classic from Gore Vidal:

"whenever a friend succeeds, a little something in me dies"

### Re: Random quotes

It seems that Latex does number equations in a depth first manner in nested footnotes. However it doesn't process the nested footnote, at least not in the example below! David Foster Wallace would not approve.
Anyone know how to get that to work?
\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\title{The Meaning of Life}
\author{G. Od}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
$$-\frac{\hbar^{2}}{2m}\frac{\partial^{2} \psi}{\partial x^{2}} + (E-V(x))\psi =0$$
Read more here\footnote{All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
$$E=mc^{2}$$
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
Read even more here\footnote{Blah blah blah Blah blah blah Blah blah blah Blah blah blah
$$\frac{\partial^{2} \phi}{\partial x\partial y}$$
blah de blah de blah
}
}
More text. And another equation.
$$\sigma^{2}_{sp}=\sigma^{2}_{A}+\sigma^{2}_{B}-2\sigma_{A}\sigma_{B}\rho$$
\end{document}

Apropos of nothing in particular you have made me wonder how latex will number equations in footnotes.

Worth a quick experiment...
Rule #1: Always number the pages of your manuscript!
Rule #2: Always number the equations on the numbered pages of your manuscript.

I was writing a short note on markets, just now, I found myself writing down "No bullishness rather than bad bullishness!"   LOL

How do I verify this convoluted text" Do I read from right to left or is it  just NOT ("I discovered when I started making money that I didn't really need it." )
What's a contra?

In fairness, no commas. It proves you are NOT {Dutch, Italian, French}.

Good question. I cut and pasted that from a news site, comma and all, and I tend to agree with you that it shouldn't be there.
